Same disclaimers.

1,2 & 4 are again Chiffchaffs, 3 is a Lesser Whitethroat given the darker back and dark grey legs that (I think) I can see.


I should add my reasoning for Chiffchaff (vs. Willow warbler for example) are dark legs, more importantly dark feet, short pp (where visible) and plain cheeks. Also in South/Central UK they are far more common!
They are most easily seaparated on song and call, but can be silent at this time of year.
Sorry if you know all this - not meant to be patronising, just explaining.

Not patronising at all. I didn't know these details (I'm a New Zealand birder) and am grateful for the info. Cheers!
